[User Picture]04:03 am - Okay... it feels really strange to hear all this doom-and-gloom talk...
...but it's really driven home just how well I was trained growing up with my finances, to an extent I've only realized it's usefulness since this recent global economic collapse we seem to be experiences.

I never really appreciated it, or my intuition and dump luck/Karma helpnig out, until I look back at my timing for things. WaMu? Used to bank with them, bailed about 2 years ago when they jumped some mental shark for me and went from cool to a cyst on my ass. Floated more-or-less bankless briefly, then of all things ended up with US Bancorp. Which appears to have been one of the least impacted major national banking whatever-the-term-is.

But I'm being faced with an honestly wierd decision now, especially in light of the current economic situation. I may well be able to save over $1k/month into the bank, and I'm wondering if I should just sock that away, or start paying my car off as fast as possible first? (Already checked, no early repayment penalty.)

So, thoughts out there, folks?7 commentsLeave a comment
